    There was a young footballer named Lime,
    Who scored for the very first time,
    Although he was glad,
    His team mates were mad,
    He forgot to changes ends at half time!

    All good fun Didds, until the ref has a brainfart and awards the try.

    This was 2014.
    As far as I can tell yes it stood, and Sydney won by nine points 6 tries to five.
    It was the the Stars only win of the season.

    It was a deadish rubber, no relegation and Perth's bonus losing point meant neither side would make the play-offs.
    Had Perth not picked up the bonus point and Rays won they would have been on equal points - but I have not done the maths to see if Rays could have finished fourth.

    That is quite outstanding!! I have not see this before.

    What amazes me is that the defending captain did not point out to the Ref that it was his team mate who touched it down. He must have been too astonished to realise what was going on.

    Although, it seems to be an easy mistake to make. Blue cuff of Rory Underwood's shirt resulted in a penalty for hands in the ruck being given to England in the 1991 World Cup semi-final....
    Keep smiling!

Eg I never saw a lawbook in over 20 years of playing rugby. I'm still surprised though that a team of commentators don't have ready access to a friendly Ref so that they can be quietly corrected if they make a blatant mistake. I'm not suggesting they get humiliated live on TV, but a quiet word would be good surely. It needn't be a high profile Ref either.

    If the former player/coach turned commentator, usually at least from the professional level, don't know the Law, and make erroneous statements, the general public, former low level players, coaches, and TV producers are going to be non-the-wiser. Only us few (relatively) learned gentlemen with the penchant for the whistle will know of the error.

    But Owens isn't in the same or an adjacent room.
